The shelter is one of 30 across Canada that is participating in the fourth annual Pedigree Adoption Drive.

The makers of Pedigree pet food will donate a dollar, to a maximum of $150,000, for every view of the Adoption Stories videos on their website (mypedigree.ca), and the money will be divided among the shelters.

The videos feature real-life shelter dogs – Bootsie and Phoenix – to encourage people to adopt a pet of their own.

SAINTS, located at 33860 Dlugosh Ave., took in 20 dogs been January and April of this year and adopted out five.
